2 Domestic Worker Cover Letter Samples

Updated on: January 26, 2023

As a domestic worker, you will have to be a little more than just ordinary to bag a job. This is especially true if you are a citizen of another country but would like to work for a family in the USA.

Whether it is an agency at which you are applying for a domestic worker position or answering a job advertisement directly from the family, your cover letter will be the deciding factor.

Cover letter writing for a domestic worker position is a little different from ordinary cover letter writing. Since you will be working in someone’s home – possibly living with them too – it is imperative that you show yourself to be the trustworthy and dependable person that you are. 

So write truthfully and make sure that you prove yourself as someone who has integrity and can maintain confidentiality.

Here are 2 sample cover letters for a domestic worker position that will help you craft your own:

Final Thought

Domestic workers perform a huge array of work duties in employers’ homes. Their tasks include housekeeping, maintenance, and errands running.

A domestic worker’s cover letter should convince the hiring manager that there is no one better than you.

In the letter, emphasize your qualifications and capabilities, as well as your passion to work for the specific employer.
